Letter: Senior Expressions page appreciated

1 Comment | Leave a Comment

I want to thank The Daily Reflector for publishing the Senior Expressions entries of my students for so many years. The most recent entries will be the last ones I submit to you because I am retiring from teaching after more than 34 years. My students have been excited the first Tuesday of every month to see if they were published on the Senior Expressions page. I just wanted you to know that publishing the poems and pictures has inspired my students to write and draw more than they would ever have done without this page in the paper.


For the complete article, please pick up a copy of The Daily Reflector. Current home delivery and electronic edition subscribers may log in to access this article at no charge. To become a subscriber, please click here or contact Customer Service at (252) 329-9505.


Yes, thank you, DR

I have also enjoyed the Senior Expressions page of the Daily Reflector, but never considered the positive effect it has on the students, as it spurs on their interest and excitement. A published piece, whether written or drawn, is a source of pride that they will clip out and enjoy looking back on the rest of their lives. This is one of the things I appreciate about the DR, and its efforts to be involved in the local community.
